Historic Savage Garden
Arthur Savage bought a house with 1.7 acres of property in 1917 in what is now Fountain City, TN. He had quite the eye for design, and devoted time and money toward creating a premiere garden. Features include substantial structures, a 280' rock wall, trees, shrubs and flowers. It's heyday was in the late 1920's. With Arthur's death in 1946, this garden fell into disrepair and was neglected. In 1986, an energetic couple bought Savage Garden with the hopes of restoring it back to its former grandeur. It has far exceeded expectations. Annette Shrader leads us on a tour with one of the property's owners, Bill Dohm.
